Several weeks (months?) ago, we embossed and painted roses on vellum at Colette's Technique Tuesday. I loved the rose, but found it a little large for my typical A2 card.
Then, I saw today's Saturday Sketch. These angled sketches usually give me problems and, to be honest, I don't have a lot of big images in my make-shift-road stash. That's when I saw this pretty rose and realized it is perfect for today's sketch. :)
Confesssion #2: Hubby's had to endure me butchering the opening line of Adele's first release from her new album. So, when I showed him the front of the card, his response was, "Does it say from the other side?" Classic hubby!
It's been a couple of fun days. Hubby went to the golf tournament and had a rain-free day! We've done a little more thrift shopping, a little beach walking, and spent the afternoon with a sweet couple we've come to know pretty well these past few months.
So, today I'm thankful for:
- new friends,
- gorgeous weather, and
- a great buy on some really cute shorts.
An Animals 4 Kids challenge started at Send a Smile 4 Kids today. Hope to work on that card tomorrow. And, the April/May Mother's-Day-inspired challenge posted at Words 2 Craft By on Wednesday. There is a guest designer spot, as well as two Paper Smooches gift certificates, up for grabs. Hope to see you at both challenges!
Have a great Sunday. As always, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
